The Centre is considering providing transport subsidy to states for promoting agriculture exports, Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu said on January 10.
“We are considering to give transport subsidy to states. It is under active consideration to promote agriculture exports,” Prabhu told reporters here.
On credit issues being faced by exporters, he said, the financial services secretary would hold meeting with banks on the matter.
Lending to exporters should be treated as a priority sector credit as funding to them has declined significantly in the recent past, Prabhu added.
On trade with Iran, the minister said, “we have decided that without violating any international law we would work with Iran”.
